DRUG CONSPIRACY AND
Money laundering charges are often made a part of prosecutions for drug crimes, fraud, white collar crime, public corruption and health care fraud charges. Such a federal investigation can last months, if not years, while prosecutors amass damaging evidence. In the process, a suspect may have his or her financial transactions monitored, Internet activity tracked, tax returns audited, bank accounts and other assets frozen or seized and Medicare or Medicaid payments withheld. In other words, a suspect’s life will be turned upside down.
If someone is aware – or even just suspects – that he or she is may be under investigation, contacting a a highly experienced and successful Federal Criminal Defense Attorney like Jim Burdick makes it possible to assert his or her legal rights or work with prosecutors to preempt the investigation and redirect it elsewhere.
Jim Burdick and his team work with private investigators and forensic accountants in defending people accused of money laundering. If you have been charged with money laundering, have been called to testify before a grand jury in a case involving money laundering, or have heard from your bank or other companies you do business with that agents have been asking questions or subpoenaing documents, you should immediately contact him. He can discuss your charges with you in a confidential consultation, and he can provide you with plans to fight what is otherwise a shadowy force arrayed against you.
